    Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. (my paraphrase)
    Give a man a fish... (note the funny improvememts too)
    (of course at that time one was not allowed to give a woman a fish)

    And malt does more than Milton can
    To justify Godís ways to man.
    Ale, man, aleís the stuff to drink
    For fellows whom it hurts to think*

    (We used to drink a lot instead of studying.)

    When you talk you only repeat what you already know, but if you listen you may learn something
